Today was my last full day in England (insert sad face, mournful violins and distant sobbing sounds). The weather was overcast. I had originally planned to visit the Imperial War Museum as Duxford but my friend Jerome suggested I might enjoy Hampstead Heath so I headed there instead. I took the tube (2 lines) to Hampstead. From there it was just a short walk through some lovely streets.
When I reached Hampstead Heath my first task was to find Parliament Hill. Jerome said you get great views of the city. He was right. Epic!
From there I wandered around the Heath. It's essentially a large park but with a really natural feel and right on London's doorstep.
After about an hour of walking I was feeling tired and decided to head back. By the tube station I noticed this telephone box cafe.
And there was a really cute walk off the Main Street.
Though, this was a little out of place.
Shortly I'll start the task of packing my bags. I've bought quite a lot so there will be much reorganisation. Lucky I have a generous allowance on my flights.
Its been an amazing holiday! I feel like I've been away for ages - months - and I've seen so much. I'm not ready to come home but I know I have to. If I could, I would move here without hesitation. But I know that's not possible. So I plan to keep coming back and exploring until I can get it out of my system. I've already started working on next year's trip!
